Each month, amidst all the jackassery and bullshit I post on this blog, I get the pleasure of selecting a charity that this site donates to thanks to the generous contributions of its readers. This month’s charity will be New Eyes For The Needy, an organization that uses donated glasses to provide a less fortunate person with the gift of corrected vision. I’ve used glasses and contacts since 1st grade, so I definitely know what it feels like to not be able to see shit, and it sucks…balls. The group’s vision, from their website:
Our mission is focused: to improve the vision of poor children and adults by 1) purchasing new eyeglasses in the United states and 2) recycling donated glass for distribution in developing nations worldwide.
Since our founding in 1932, New Eyes has improved the eyesight of more than 7,000,000 people in the U.S. and around the world.
For about $60, New Eyes for the Needy can improve a person’s life. Each new pair of glasses purchased by New Eyes helps an American child succeed in school, an adult secure a job, or a senior citizen read medicine labels. Our recycled glasses bring clearer vision to scores of people living in poverty overseas.
Last month I randomly selected a contributor to receive the Texts From Last Night book. This month I’ll be sending out a copy of the Cyanide and Happiness book.

Thanks for your help.
